, julie has done on affordable care act. a lot to talk about today including some disturbing education all rankings coming out. >> we'll get to that. we'll begin with the train derailment in new york. federal investigators are turning their attention to the engineer as new revelations of just how fast the train was going. the train was going 82 miles per hour when it took that curve. it should have been traveling at just 30 miles per hour. nbc's tom costello has the latest on the investigation. >> reporter: on the tracks in the bronx mta crews lifted the remains of the broken train as crash investigators went in for a closer look. tons of twisted steel scraped and crushed from sunday's violent crash. the ntsb announced the two black boxes recovered from the train revealed a stunning development. >> train was traveling at approximately 82 miles per hour as it went into a 30 mile-per-hour curve. >> reporter: 82 miles per hour. only six seconds before the train came to a complete second engine power was cutback. then the engineer suddenly applied full brakes. >> when i heard about the speed,
a few things that were on our list that we just had to get done. the tax code had to work, education had to work. you had to have regulatory system that worked. you had to be fast on the dime in working with the private sector because they could take their investment and go elsewhere real fast. so we had our own little strategy. and i would guess that you sitting down, what is the strategy for hawaii? what is it that you must get ght to survive in the 21st century? and that then define what is you need to do even if you find yourself in the minority position. >> did i hear you correctly are you the only republican in the tate senate? >> i'm actually in the house. but there is one senator out of 25 in the senate and there are 7 out of 51 in the house. so we are eight out of 76. >> we're trying to change your dynamic. >> well, the united states capitol there's a saying in the house that the other political party is the opposition. but the enemy, the enemy is the senate. so i guess we temporarily lumped you in with the enemy. so we're sorry about that. it sounds like your side emphasizes qu
